Guns shouldn't be your weapon of choice if combat is to happen underwater. This video from physicist Andreas Wahl demonstrates why.

He took to a pool with a contraption that allows him to pull the trigger himself. Well, if you're going to get shot it's probably best not to burden someone else with the guilt of it.

But he escapes unscathed thanks to science. Still, the look on his face indicates that he still felt relieved despite having science on his side and a good distance between himself and the gun.

This is definitely one experiment that we would advise against trying at home, even with adult supervision.
